Tis that time of year. Everywhere you turn someone is telling you to get a flu shot…..at your local pharmacy, at school, at work. While there’s no question that the flu is a substantial health risk, many questions have arisen about the effectiveness and/or the side effects of flu shots.
Today’s post is presented as an alternative for those of you who have decided a traditional flu shot is not for you. (Please consult your physician if you are at high risk of developing flu-related complications.)
I have posted about the flu bomb before…which is taken when you feel the flu coming on or are already suffering from full-blown symptoms. The “Flu Shot In A Bottle” can help prevent the flu in the first place.
Flu Shot Blend:
Fill a glass roller bottle (or other small glass bottle) with:
- 15 drops Defend essential oil blend
- 15 drops Lemon essential oil
- 15 drops Oregano essential oil
- 10 drops Tea Tree essential oil
- 1 to 2 tsp Fractionated coconut oil
HOW TO USE:
Combine oils in a glass roller bottle and rub onto the bottom of the feet daily (if you are sick, apply every 2 hrs.)
Don’t forget….other good practices during the cold and flu season include: good hand washing, a nutrient rich diet and plenty of rest!
1. Get plenty of rest.
2. Eat a nutrient rich diet.
3. Take your vitamins.
4. Wash your hands.
NOTE: A reminder…I am by no means an anti-vaxxer. All of my children were fully immunized, and my son Kell who has Type 1 Diabetes receives a flu shot every year because for him to get the flu is a much more serious thing than for those who are generally healthy. For those who need a reminder, I will repeat the second paragraph of this post…“Today’s post is presented as an alternative for those of you who have decided a traditional flu shot is not for you. (Please consult your physician if you are at high risk of developing flu-related complications.)”
